  The National Association of Black Storytellers stands with and supports the nonviolent protests.
We join in the demands that the wanton murder of African Americans in the United States, especially at the hands of those sworn to serve and protect, must stop now. We challenge our elected representatives to pass laws to eradicate the deliberate disparities in the education, incarceration, health care and humane treatment of African Americans.
